Frequently Asked Questions

 

  1. When do the baseball and softball seasons start and end?

  We hope to begin practices in mid March, weather permitting. The season will end this year either June 8 or June 15.

 

    2. What days will my child practice and play games on?

              We are not able to give specific practice or game days prior to the start of the season. Once registration closes, we create a schedule based on the number of teams we have for that particular year. We publish the practice and game schedules once we have had time to finalize all the details.

        Softball-Airport Park

        T-Ball-Milford Ball Field

  4. How many practices or games are scheduled per week?

       Typically, there will be 2-3 practices or games per week. This is very subject to change depending on the weather and field conditions.

In certain cases, we also allow players who are older than the guidelines to play in a younger division. The decision to play up or down is based on the safety of not only your child, but also the other children in the division.
